“Indiana Soccer is extremely fortunate to have these outstanding coaches who are willing to commit their time, energy and leadership to the development of players from the state of Indiana through the Olympic Development Program” comments John Carter, Director of the Indiana Olympic Development Program. “The head coaches named have the ability to design, lead, and implement training sessions based on an appropriate age group curriculum to challenge and develop players, as well as select players to represent Indiana at the Region II Camp in the summer of 2011. They all share the vision that development should be at the forefront of the Olympic Development curriculum. I am excited to work with an outstanding staff in assisting the players from Indiana to continue to be challenged at the highest levels.”
John Carter also states, “Indiana Olympic Development Program recognizes the need for specialized, unique, and innovated Goalkeeper training. I am extremely excited that Mike Sanich has agreed to lead the development of our goalkeepers. Mike Sanich has been a leader of goalkeeper development, not only in the state of Indiana but also nationally. There is no question in my mind that Mike Sanich will provide this leadership for the Indiana Olympic Development Program.”
